Hi everyone, I had some serious issues updating the ROM-- the vendor image said it was outdated, blah blah blah. Read every forum page but couldn't find any solution anywhere. I extracted the vendor img myself from Google's factory image and that worked great using TWRP.

Glad you figured it out. Post #1472 (and others) actually has the answer you were looking for. Less than two and a half pages back.

Does OTG support have to do with ROM or Kernel? Everytime I transfer something from internal space to my OTG micro SD card, and the memory card becomes corrupt and I have to reformat. It works on my PC.

For me, Win 7 needs to "check for errors" after using on the 5X. It passes the checks (no format needed). My solution is to power off the phone then I remove the OTG stick.

search gave me this

http://forum.xda-developers.com/search.php?searchid=404857766

its easy if you try la la la la

It is actually listed in the downloads section of the first post, under "Flashable vendors", grabbed mine from there and updated.





No need to be rude. It wasn't explicitly stated. I only posted what I did so it could help others who are in the same boat.


wow @PiousInquisitor That's only 3 pages back!


That was me nicely pointing out that you read the whole thread but the answer located a mere 27 posts before yours. It was funny.

Um, is anyone having their cellular data turn on by itself? The Switch doesn't look on, but "LTE" is next to the signal bars and the amount of data used increases. Switching data on and off doesn't help. Non ctme clean flash

unrelated security question, for anyone that might know. i was thinking about security today, because my phone has no encryption (both system and userdata).

However, with purenexus rom if your phone is ON and it's stolen, you can essentially prevent someone from booting into recovery since the normal power menu is not available (via purenexus settings) and pressing and holding the power button for 10 secs just reboots the phone into OS again which is still locked. Also, the USB defaults to charging, so data is inaccessible, and I've disabled the quick pulldown from the lock screen as well so data/wifi/airplanemode cannot be toggled.

is there a way for a would-be thief to boot into recovery in a situation such as this to access your data and/or format the phone?

Wouldn't they be able to hold down power and volume down to boot into recovery from fastboot?

I am pretty sure you can hold down the volume down and power button from anywhere to boot into the bootloader then go into recovery from there. Not near my phone right now so I can't test but I am pretty sure that is how it works.

Ah, you're right, you definitely can. It takes a screenshot first, screen times out, then after about 10 seconds it goes into the bootloader.

That's the only way so far! Let's hope if my phone gets stolen, the thief is not tech savvy

The first time Ehen you set up your display secutity you geht ask if you need to enter your pin, password or pattern (whatever you have choosen) to boot the phone. Select yes, and you have to enter it in recovery too.

Don't know, look at security, display lock settings , I use pin security. With my encrypted device you can Boot into recovery but can't access data partition without password/pin.

    a couple things to note:
    *not all mods from marshmallow will be in the first build so be patient as i add your favorite mods, etc!
    *as of right now the rom only has substratum legacy support. will update to full blown substratum as the stability increases for N!
    *changelog doesnt display anything for this first build as all changes are listed on github/xda op, changelog will be back next release!

    Okay guys the time is here, finally 7.1.2 for purenexus officially released!!!

    a couple things to note:
    *the rom is now signed with private keys starting with 7.1.2 this is good for security purposes, but you will be required to clean flash this build, going forward you can dirty flash as long as it is an official release
    *i have removed the built in gapps for "nexus devices" i however will not respond to any bug reports using open gapps, use the newly made BeansGapps alongside purenexus for the best results!!
    *this release mostly is focused on stability and getting all the features from 7.1.1 into 7.1.2 without issues, next release will be geared towards going over the feature request section of the g+ community
    *with 7.1.2 google updated the radio and boot loader i suggest fast-booting those as well

    ok, Lets get to the goodies!!
